Release Date:  August 1, 2011

"The Luxe" meets the ancient world in the extraordinary story of Cleopatra's daughter.

Selene has grown up in a palace on the Nile with her parents, Cleopatra & Mark Antony--the most brilliant, powerful rulers on earth. But the jealous Roman Emperor Octavianus wants Egypt for himself, & when war finally comes, Selene faces the loss of all she's ever loved. Forced to build a new life in Octavianus's household in Rome, she finds herself torn between two young men and two possible destinies--until she reaches out to claim her own.

This stunning novel brings to life the personalities & passions of one of the greatest dramas in history, & offers a wonderful new heroine in Selene.

Well, that's my mailbox...what goodies did you get?



  1. Cleopatra's Moon sounds wonderful! I can't wait to read it! I really enjoyed Cleopatra's Daughter, which is (obviously) also about Selene, although they call her Cleopatra Selene there.
    Happy reading! :)

  2. Sounds wonderful and the cover is gorgeous!

  3. Sounds like fun -- the cover is certainly deliciously dramatic!

  4. I love Cleopatra related stories

  5. Gotta love any book about Cleopatra, IMO! Enjoy.

    Happy reading!

  6. Cleopatra has always been such a glamorous person in history with so many people trying to play her character all the way from Elizabeth Taylor to women dressing up as her at Halloween. I look forward to reading this book!

  7. Huh. There's be a real trend of books about Kleopatra Selene recently. First Cleopatra's Daughter, then Lily of the Nile, now this one. Weird.

  8. CLEOPATRA'S MOON sounds like it will be a most interesting book. I look forward to your review.

  9. I haven't read anything about Cleopatra's Daughter...this one sounds good!
